Holiday Gift Guide to Etsy 2

Check out these amazing sellers.  There are so many incredibly talented artists on Etsy but here are a few more I personally love.

1. Bayousalvage
She is a native of the deep south, with an aesthetic and experience that is true Southern Gothic. Her childhood was spent playing on the decaying grounds of Rowan Oak (Faulkner's home)amidst rusty farm equipment and filbert trees that curled back against the sun.
To get her childhood you mix :
3 parts rust, 2 parts torn lace, a jigger of bourbon,& a splash of absinthe. Serve with a family secret (or two) & you have bayousalvage style.  

Incredibly amazing store :-)

My name is Ginette and I'm from New Zealand.
Ikat & Batik has evolved from my love of textiles, sewing, shopping and travelling. I fall in love with Bali and Indonesian textiles on the first of several trips to Indonesia to visit my daughter, and dream of living here. The tropical climate, low cost of living, vibrant arts and craft scene, and not being too far from family in New Zealand, are all added attractions.

Her items are fabulous and who would not love a IKAT pillow or  BATIK silk scarf.  These are essentials in life! :-)

3.  siblingrivalrie
If you have a moment check out her project that she is doing with her sister on kickstarter. it's a dog portrait book project called canine chronicles, and its going to be a photo book and fictional history of the 20th century's most notable dogs. if you become a backer for the project you can get your own copy of the finished book and other great rewards.

Love these prints and love the project that she is doing.  Check it out! :-)

4. Sydney Hale Co.
Who doesnt love Fine Oils, Butters, Herbs, Waxes and Essentials.  Best type of products. :-)

5. HPerl Jewelry
Story told by her, When I left Maui and returned to Israel to join the army, I wore a sea shell tied with ribbon around my neck for good luck. Following the death of my mother, I’ve been wearing one of her gold bracelets on my wrist to always remember. As a TV producer, I wore my beeping pager as my only jewel and a badge of honor. Since my wedding, I’ve been wearing a simple ring, the symbol of my love and our union.

I was born in Israel, grew up in Alaska and Hawaii, and reside in New York City.
I’ve been a soldier, a student and a journalist. Now I’m a wife, a writer and a jewelry designer.
I aspire to cultivate my life experiences into beautiful designs and classic pieces...

This woman lived such an enriched life already and it shows in her beautiful jewelry.  Love the molded ring above as an alternative to a traditional wedding ring. :-)

6. dekaAnimals
This guy makes the most incredibly adorable prints.  I love that its all about animals.

Holiday Gift Guide to Etsy

Just a little reminder....*********Dont forget, EL Vintage SALE  :-)  ******************

Holidays are in full swing and what better place to shop than Etsy.  There are so many amazing artists on this incredible website. I wanted to share some of my favorites with all of you.

Thief&Bandit is Amie Cunningham, a woodcarver, designer, and artist by way of Canada and now living and working in Richmond, VA. All Thief&Bandit fabrics are handprinted and all goods handmade with care in her Richmond studio. 

Incredible little shop.  Love all their items but this scarf is to die for.  Scarves are such an essential accessory to looking the part. 

Alice is a designer and illustrator living and working in London, England. With a love of the hand drawn and beautiful, graphic elements she produces illustrations based on the natural world. Birds, animals, landscapes, and geometric patterns feature strongly in her work.

Her art is so magical.  I love it all and I hope you do too!

A native of Prague, Czech Republic, Marketa Psenickova received a degree in accessory design from the Fashion Institute of Technology. After graduating, she began a line of edgy yet classic handbags and Marketa New York was born.

I have never look at a shop and said i want everything but I do.  Every single clutch, pouch that she has for sale.  PLUS the prices are so reasonable.

Maybe because of her gentle influence - and nostalgia over remembering her knitting Lopi, Fair Isle and Arran sweaters that were all the rage in the Seventies as well as my teenage punk rocker black mohair sweaters - She finds knitting and making clothes sublimely comforting. She has been knitting for friends and family for over 25 years.

Check out her photos, her items, her everything....such beautiful items all around and the most beautiful thing is she is from Scotland :-) 

Metalista is hand constructed jewelry made by Samara.
Her background is in Interior Architecture from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. She enjoys working with simple geometric shapes and color. She tries to translate that into graphic wearable pieces that people will enjoy and get tons of wear out of.

Her jewelry is so architectural and simplistic.  I love it all and I adore that majority is brass. 

I love her artwork.  There is such humor and delight in every piece.  The dog print is my favorite.  It itself brings back such fun memories of my childhood and how fun it was to do this in the dark with just one little light. :-)

Cathy loves working in multiple disciplines, and  strives to use local and eco-friendly materials whenever possible.  Her art blog: www.habit-of-art.blogspot.com
She posts new work on my blog every week. You can also find artist interviews, tutorials, and lots of great art from Etsy artists. AND she runs art giveaways from time to time.

I adore this artist with all my heart.  You must own one of her amazing pieces.  I just love her head and how she thinks.  Its incredible.

Her work is so fun.  I love bows so very Chanel in every way and to make them colorful puts the icing on the cake.

ENJOY these amazing sellers.....more to come.  
Happy Shopping!!!
